  • The Champions League in midweek saw my bet on Juventus to win the tournament remain alive after they defended superbly to prevent Barcelona scoring in the second leg. I do hope Juventus win the tournament. Not just from a financial perspective. It would make a pleasant change for it to be won by a professional Italian outfit who can attack and defend in equal measure.

    Barcelona are out of the Champions League and this weekend face Real Madrid in La Liga. Barca have to win to have any hope of snatching the La Liga title from their long time rivals . . .

  • Greed is not good! But we can all be guilty of getting greedy some days, can't we?

    Congratulations to those members who backed the safer, 5 teams to win 10/1 accumulator option for last weekend. You were wise. I was not. I got greedy. I went for 8 teams to win at 50/1. I should have stuck to my original bet - and many of you did. Everton's win ensured the more sensible among you, were paid out - unlike me.

    There are crucial fixtures in the Championship and Leagues 1 & 2 on Bank Holiday Monday. And . . .

  • We are fast approaching the stage of the season when the big games come thick and fast.

    Crucial end of season matches in the English leagues, Cup finals and the final stages of the Champions League. For me, this is when the Champions League gets interesting. When it more resembles the much missed European Cup.

    Leicester City have done very well to make it this far in the Champions League. They are the best price 40/1 outsiders to win the tournament. No surprise there. For Leicester fans, I expect just getting this far feels like a major victory.

    The . . .

  • Hurrah! The 12/1 accumulator paid out for members of VG Tips. Wins for Leicester, Preston, Brighton, Millwall and Sheffield United.

    It is worth reiterating that accumulators are fun bets. Hopeful punts. Accurately predicting what 5, 6 or 7 football teams will do on any given day has never been more challenging. Football results are not as easy to predict as they were 3, 4, 5 or more years ago. Inconsistency is rife in English football.

    At this late stage of the season you have a mixture of nervous players - perhaps scared of relegation - and those who are, mentally at . . .

  • The winning weekend tips included:- Brentford at 13/10 and Wycombe at 5/6. The 10/1 acca fell down due to a surprising turn of events in West Yorkshire.

    Huddersfield Town have been a revelation this season and will be involved in the Championship play offs. But, last Saturday, they lost their composure at home and were reduced to ten men. We needed them to win but, 6 minutes into injury time, Burton Albion scored the winning goal.

    As previously instructed to members, I had placed my bet with a bookie offering your stake back if only one of . . .

  • Every so often it is worth me repeating some important aspects to consider when betting on football. New members join all the time and this week one of them asked me if I was "100% sure" when I offered a suggested accumulator bet.

    NO!

    We all know that, in life, we can only be sure of death and taxes. All of us will face the first, and only the wealthy can escape the latter.

    A football accumulator bet, be it a treble, 5-fold, magnificent 7 bet or one containing even more teams, should be looked upon as a fun . . .

  • There are no Premier League or Championship matches for a while. That's because it is International fortnight.

    I never offer tips for friendly games between countries. You can never know how strong a team any manager will send out for such matches.

    But there are some World Cup Qualifiers this weekend and I have cherry picked some possible bets of interest, including for the Republic of Ireland versus Wales match in Dublin on Friday night.

    And there are domestic matches in Leagues 1 & 2 this weekend.

    This evening Wales . . .

  • Midweek winning football tips included:- Lucas Joao to score anytime for Blackburn at odds of 14/5. Southend to win at Coventry at a generous price of 13/10. Monaco win at 33/20. Accrington Stanley win at 4/6 and Juventus win at 7/10.

    As I write we have the latest managerial sacking. Sorry, I mean departure by "mutual consent." What a nonsensical phrase.

    Chairman to manager: "You're fired. Here's your compensation, now bugger off."

    Manager: "OK, thanks very much. Tara."

    Steve Gibson, one of the more responsible football club owners, will have a new manager . . .

  • Alfie Mawson scored again for members of VG Tips. This time I tipped the Swansea City central defender to simply score at any stage of the match at Hull. He did that for us at odds of 14/1. It's only a few weeks since he scored the first goal for me at odds of 30/1. So Alfie has certainly boosted the football profit of late in what is proving to be a very good season for those of us at VG Tips who bet on football.

    The other successful football tips last week were:- Burton Albion winning . . .
